Organized in 1923 "For I he Sake of Gain”
LAMBDA CHI TOAST Oh Lambda Chi.' Oh Lambda Chi! li e will ever cheer thy name, liver will we "wear the colors That f roelaim to all. our fame.
In September 1923. the Lambda Chi society of the Oshkosh Normal School was organized. The chief aim of the founders of the society was to further musical culture. Since there had been no society in the school devoted to the study of music, a group of young women who were interested and talented in this field, founded this society. Three of the young women most instrumental in founding this society were Dorothy Smith. Eunice Smith and Lillian Mosliug. Miss Lila M. Rose, former music adviser, did much to promote interests in music among the members. Miss Ruth Willcockson. who has been faculty adviser of this group since its organization, has devoted her time generously and whole-heartedly to the end of constant growth and betterment.
Membership in the society is based upon high scholarship and talent and interest in music. The society endeavors to carry out its purpose by having a part of every pr« gram devoted to music study. In this study is included the history of the music of all nations and races, the lives of famous composers and their masterpieces, and opera s and operatic stars. This study is in most cases augmented by selections on the piano, violin and other musical instruments.
In Phi Beta Sigma, the Honorary Scholarship Fraternity, Lambda Chi was well represented. having contributed thirty-three and one-third per cent of the total number of student members of the class of 1920. The Misses Katherine and Marie Kafer 26. had the distinction of being the first in their class in scholarship.
In the field of extra-curricular activities, the society has always given ample support. A large percentage of the members have belonged to the Glee Club, and several members have played in the orchestra, Lois Finger 27. during her one year at school here, has been the accompanist for the Glee Clubs. Orchestra, and Quartette.
Miss Eunice Smith ’25 was editor-in-chief of the Quiver for that year. In 1926 several members of the society were active on the Quiver Staff and Miss Dorothy Smith was the associated editor for this publication.
In 1923 Miss Dorothy Smith ’27. representing the society in Liter-society Oratorical contest, won first place and gave Lambda Chi the distinction of winning the Anger Oratorical Trophy the first year after its presentation.
Lambda Chi has always participated in inter-society debating and each year has had one or more members on the Debate Squad. The Misses Dorothy Smith. Stella Peterson and Margaret Kelly have represented the society in this activity.
In other organizations such as the Junior League of Women Voters. Y. P. C. A. and Marquette, members of Lambda Chi have taken active part and have held offices.
In social functions Lambda Chi has been especially active this year. The first affair given by the society was a sleighride. Two "bobs” took members to the Golden Pheasant, where dancing was enjoyed.
O11 February 18 an informal dancing party was again given as Marie Arno’s Dancing Studio. A representative crowd was present and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
If anyone had been near the Balcony at 5:30 on the morning of April 12 he would have seen twenty or twenty-five girls heading toward Menominee Park. This group was composed of lambda Chi girls starting off on a breakfast hike. After an honest-to-goodness campfire had been built the girls fried bacon and eggs. When breakfast was over a drizzling rain began to fall. After the crowd had enjoyed the questionable pleasure of a walk home in the drizzle, the rain stopped in time for them to walk to school in the sunshine.
The Spring Formal was held May 7. the formal dance given yearly by the bmUla Chi Society.

Organized in 1923 “Know Your Opportunity”
Kappa Gamma ter thy daughters Pledge our true allegiance to tliee.
And throughout each year to come IVe pledge our loyalty to thee.
The society was organized in 1923 under the name of Val Ferrari by Miss Fritche. Hu's last semester there was an official revision made to the original charter, changing the name of the society from Val Ferrari to Kappa Gamma. The purpose of the society is to create an interest in art appreciation and dramatic production, and to create friendship among a group of girls. Bearing these purposes in mind the members of the society endeavor to promote school spirit and create a womanly attitude, stressing at the same time a desire for knowledge. .
The society holds meetings regularly every Thursday evening in room 107 to discuss business matters, and several of the members participate in literary programs. Once a month the society holds a meeting at the Oshkosh Public Museum. Here under Miss Bouffleur’s guidance we learn to appreciate the paintings exhibited each month. At several of the regular meetings different members gave various play reviews and several one-act plays were presented. Of the one-act plays presented at society meetings. "Good Night”, by Marion Spencer Smith, was presented by Marion Fling and Ruth Pynch before the Women’s Reading Club at the Guild Hall on January i . The same play was broadcasted by Marion Fling and Ruth Pynch at Omro during the month of January as part of a Normal School program.
Several of the members took part in extra-curricular activities. Marion Kintz and Eleanor DelgofT were members of the girls’ debate squad. Margaret I .oe sc her. Florence Sorenson, and Hazel Market) take part in basketball, baseball, and volley ball. Members of the Glee Club and orchestra are Bertha Hiebsch and Iola Laccas.
On March 27 Mrs. V. C. Hewitt gave a very interesting and instructive talk about parliamentary drill. After some discussion Mrs. Hewitt led the members in a snappy parliamentary drill from which all received much valuable information. The society greatly appreciated Mrs. Hewitt’s help.
The social events for the year included: rushing parties, a Beach party at Margaret Loescher’s Cottage, a dinner party at Morgan’s, a breakfast at the Business Women’s Club, a theatre party at the Oshkosh Theatre, a bridge party at the Business Women’s Club, and a luncheon at Stein's.
